DirecTV Pays Studios To Help Confuse Customers Further | Techdirt

April 22, 2010

From the article:

“As many as 400 new movies will be available this summer through DirecTV Cinema. Titles from Universal Studios Home Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox and Time Warner Inc.’s Warner Bros. will be given to DirecTV subscribers 28 days before they can be rented on Netflix,” said Paul Guyardo, DirecTV’s chief sales and marketing officer

Fucking retarded!  These assholes think they’re one-upping Netflix but the reality is that Netflix has a better business model.  All they have to do is weather this storm of bullshit for a while and when the studios finally come around, Netflix will be the only player in the game with the infrastructure and install base.
